Zarathustra was an enlightened master who lived about 5000 years ago in Persia (Iran). He was the founder of Zoroastrian religion and Mazdaism (Seeker of Wisdom). His teaching came to Greek as philosophy (Lover of Wisdom). His aim was to transform humanity into
their higher and conscious selves. Healing is about changing our level of being. It is an alchemy. It is not changing metal into gold, changing water into wine. It is an inner transformation of ourselves into an awakened humanity. Being is what we really are and to change our being one must not just be satisfied with who they are.
Mazdaism's teaching is an inner work and is based on oral tradition. The wisdom has been transmitted orally ‘mouth to ear,’ through centuries from the time of Zarathustra. The Magi who were the closest ones in Zarathustra’s inner circle learned directly from him. Later, they passed the wisdom to others through the oral tradition.
Come unto me, O Ye, the best, and Lord of Wisdom, and reveal Thyself to me, so that my words may be heard not only by the Society of Magians, but by others as well.
(Gathas: Yasna 33-7)
He declared that Mazda (Wisdom) is The Sublime Intelligence and Wisdom. We humans possess intelligence and consciousness similar to Mazda when we connect and expand to our wisdom within us. He encouraged us to achieve “Mazda-hood” through self-realization (Haurvatat - perfection through realization) and self-purification.
The two gifts of perfection and eternity, O my Lord, shall lead the people to spiritual and inner light.
(Gathas: Yasna 34-11)
A person needs to continuously work on oneself towards becoming. A caterpillar can never transform into a butterfly if it is happy to be a caterpillar. Zarathustra did not ask people to abandon their religion, culture and tradition, but he dreamt of uniting us with wisdom and goodness. He taught us to harmonize our lives towards “Good Thought, Good Word, and Good Deed” despite our differences in forms and beliefs.
"The best life is for the one,
who turns towards light,
and sheds light to others."
